If they are standard Toyota, I'd say go to a good motor factors and get a price for shocks from the likes of Monroe..
They are excellent and probably a lot cheaper than main dealer (possibly about E55 each).
Maybe though you might want to uprate to adjustables, like Koni, which would be more expensive..
I'm fairly sure(99%) part no. for Koni Sport damper is 8041-1265.
Get 'em sorted-- You don't want to be pulled by the Gardai.. :P

if i were you i would invest in some koni's.
xnickx might be able to do better then motor factors.
you will need to replace the pair if you want to do the job properly :?

You would have noticed the next time you drove it anyway.Every bump causes a nice banging noise once the fluid is gone out the shocks :x :x
